$18,000 andCall my crazy, but I'm going to guess it was Edwards what took the money.
NEW ORLEANS, La., Sept. 21.—Frankie Edwards, who last night promoted the Tony Canzoneri-Eddie "Kid" Wolfe fight which drew $21,526.43 was sought tonight by district attorney's office, charged with embezzling $18,000.
Canzoneri got his money but Wolfe, and the referees, were not paid. Sammy Goldman, Canzoneri's manager, got most of Tony's share before he entered the ring and lost the least.
